Commercial sale and leaseback

Selling your property assets and then leasing them back can help you convert investment capital that had been tied up in real estate into a cash injection, whilst retaining use of the real estate. 

Is it right for your business?

JLL New Zealand Capital Markets Director Ross Bolton explains why sale and leaseback activity has been rising in popularity as a business tool.
Raising capital from your company’s property by selling and leasing back individual assets or whole portfolios can be highly beneficial. Monetising your real estate can help:
  • Provide access to alternative capital sources
  • Release capital to increase liquidity
  • Fund M&A, new technology, modernisation or pension deficits
  • Capitalise on specific property market sale conditions
We bring together extensive knowledge and skills, which range from transaction negotiation and execution to accounting, financial modelling and analysis, to ensure an optimal tailored solution which will successfully match your business and funding objectives with the right investor.
